Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Blanc (100%)
There is a hint of the exotic present on the ripe pear and essence of apple-scented nose. The exceptionally rich, generous and fleshy flavors possess better volume and notably better complexity on the lingering and reasonably well-balanced finale.
It has a very attractive, vibrant nose of pears and white pepper. Fine attack on the palate, almost racy. It has a juicy and rounded character and is already accessible, and has a fine acidic backbone. The plump finish makes this a delight to drink.
The palate is well balanced with a smooth entry, hints of white peach and fresh pear, though it just misses a little tension and complexity on the finish.
About the winery:
Domaine Henri Gouges is located in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges, in Burgundy. The estate was founded in 1919 by Henri Gouges and continues to be owned and operated by the Gouges family. He was among the first producers to reject the Burgundian trading system then considered corrupt. Instead, from the 1920s, Henri Gouges devoted himself to estate-bottling, a rare practice at the time. In the 1930s, when the Burgundian appellations were first designated, he successfully led a campaign against the designation of the Nuits-Saint-Georges vineyards as Grands Crus when he was both mayor of the village and appointed member of INAO. Today, the vineyards of Domaine Henri Gouges cover 14.5 hectares, including plots spread over seven sites classified Premier Cru. Almost all wines are made from Pinot Noir, but a limited amount of white wines are also produced. A Pinot Blanc is produced under the generic Bourgogne Blanc appellation.
